Osho in Kathmandu

Beloved Osho,
From birth onwards, time seemed to me to go faster and faster. But since we left America, just over two months ago, it feels to me like whole lifetimes have passed. Osho, what have you done to time?

Osho says, “When you surrender, the door opens. So don’t bother much where to surrender, simply think about more and more surrendering.”

Osho gives the name Deva Prayoga to the new sannyasin, which means divine experiment. “From the known one has to go always into the unknown and one day from the unknown into the unknowable.”

Q: Today at the lecture you extolled the virtues of Hasidism. But if they are so praiseworthy, so full of feeling of brotherhood, etc., why do they exclude women from their religious practices, and particularly their ecstatic religious dancing?

Osho replies, “The symbol of the mystic rose is that if man takes care of the seed that he is born with, gives it the right soil … then the ultimate growth is symbolized as the mystic rose – when your being blossoms and opens all its petals and releases the beautiful fragrance.”

Osho answers a question about why he has come to earth, and says, “My whole message is to see the truth, to see the hell that ego creates in the name of perfection, uniqueness – and to let it drop.”

Osho answers the question, “You have said that Buddha attained mahaparinirvana, but also that Buddha is to come once again in human form and will be known as Maitreya. How is it possible to take on a human form after reaching nirvana? Please explain this.”

“Remember that you are alone, there is no God, there are no messengers, and there is no dictator. You have to be decisive about your own life,” states Osho in 1987 after he returns to Pune.

A sannyasin says: I’m going back to pursue my study of astrology and to try to use it as a medium to communicate with people – not for its predictative qualities but just as a psychological tool…. in pointing out blocks and indicating how best we can use our energy.
